Prayer for Racial Healing

Racism has rightly been called America’s original sin. It remains a blot on our national life and continues to cause acts and attitudes of hatred, as recent events have made evident. The need to condemn, and combat, the demonic ideologies of white supremacy, neo-Nazism and racism has become especially urgent at this time. Our efforts must be constantly led and accompanied by prayer—but they must also include concrete action.”[1]  People of faith call on the Divine Physician, Christ the Lord, to heal the wounds of racism throughout our land.


Wake Me Up Lord

Wake me up Lord, so that the evil of racism
finds no home within me.
Keep watch over my heart Lord,
and remove from me any barriers to your grace,
that may oppress and offend my brothers and sisters.
Fill my spirit Lord, so that I may give
services of justice and peace.
Clear my mind Lord, and use it for your glory.
And finally, remind us Lord that you said,
“blessed are the peacemakers,
for they shall be called children of God.”

“As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” 1 Peter 4:10

Thank you to all parishioners who have participated in Faith, Hope & Courage. We are blessed you have chosen to use your gifts to serve your brothers and sisters in Christ here at Saint Joseph. For those requesting prayer, we will offer up your intentions today at Mass.

This week in my reflection and prayer I thought about how much I am grateful for the great commitment and faith of this faith community.  I was actually viewing Fr. Tony Nyong at 10:00AM Mass and had a deep appreciation for how those who share their time and talent give so much for us to have such a beautiful celebration, from the environment, the brightness and cleanliness of the church, to the music, the readers and committed servers, so many work together to allow us to have such a beautiful celebration of our Catholic faith.  This moved me deeply to again thank you for your generosity.   

In humble gratefulness I also ask those who can and have not supported St. Joseph to please do so.  We so desire to continue to serve you and offer well planned and executed worship services.  From our Sunday Masses, to Eucharistic Adoration, to our “Know Truth, Know Faith” series.  In addition our desire to serve those on the margins and peripheries who are so in need of our help.  Many view our Masses and services but have not contributed, whether you are here in the United States, or any where in the world you can support this international world wide ministry with a simple click below following the translation in Spanish.

Nuestro trabajo en conjunto nos ha hecho posible capear una poderosa tormenta en los últimos meses. Nuestro futuro siempre será incierto, pero juntos podemos poner nuestra fe en el Señor, y dar un paso valiente y esperanzado en nuestra planificación para poder salir adelante como parroquia.

Esta semana, en mi reflexión y oración, pensé en lo mucho que estoy agradecido por el gran compromiso y la fe de esta comunidad de fe.  En realidad estaba viendo la Misa del P. Tony Nyong y tenía un profundo aprecio por cómo aquellos que comparten su tiempo y talento dan tanto por nosotros para tener una celebración tan hermosa, desde el medio ambiente, el brillo y la limpieza de la iglesia, hasta la música, los lectores y los servidores comprometidos, tantos trabajan juntos para permitirnos tener una celebración tan hermosa de nuestra fe católica.  Esto me conmovió profundamente a agradecerles de nuevo su generosidad.   

Con humilde gratitud, también pido a los que pueden y no han apoyado a San José que lo hagan por favor.  Deseamos continuar sirviéndole y ofreciendo servicios de adoración bien planificados y ejecutados.  Desde nuestras misas dominicales, a la Adoración Eucarística, a nuestra serie “Conoce la Verdad, Conoce la Fe”.  Además, nuestro deseo de servir a aquellos en los márgenes y periferias que tanto necesitan nuestra ayuda.  Muchos ven nuestras Misas y servicios, pero no han contribuido, ya sea que esté aquí en los Estados Unidos, o en cualquier lugar del mundo, puede apoyar este ministerio internacional mundial con un simple clic a continuación.  

Gracias, Pe. Stephan
